Fans have no basis on which to judge NCAAB assistant coaches

In football, there are clear areas of responsibility and you can isolate the performance of position coaches and coordinators pretty well from the bleachers. Which squads are executing, which players are stepping up, etc.

Basketball is as far from that as possible. The myth is that the HC is responsible for everything, even recruiting, and all accountability (praise and blame) is directed to him by all parties deliberately. It is a CEO model, and the lower coaches are not VPs of various divisions, they are more like executive assistants to the CEO.
